Problem summary

  • When a locale uses a comma (,) instead of a period (.) as the
    decimal sign and the format string has three decimal positions,
    the decimal value is multiplied by 1000; that is, the decimal is
    replaced with a period (.), which is the thousand separator
    sign.
    
    The value was mishandled because an inappropriate Dojo function
    was used to retrieve the numerical value of the input. The
    existing logic omitted the fact that the value that was passed
    into the Dojo function had already been delocalized.

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM 8.0.1.0 and 8.0.1.2 that uses a
    proper JavaScript function instead of the Dojo function.
